    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. tengo_sueno 12 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I'm a female med student as well and this is one of the benefits of going into OB/gyn that I hadn't previously considered but am now very appreciative of.

    [–] 6 Reasons Why You’re Not Confident tengo_sueno 3 points ago in howtonotgiveafuck

    Look into Buteyko breathing methods. They helped me a lot with difficulty breathing when I stated running again.

    [–] Doctors Regularly Give Anesthesized Patients Non-Consensual Pelvic Exams—And This Needs To Stop tengo_sueno 26 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in Feminism

    Med student here, you are correct. The attending gets express consent for the exam under anesthesia from the patient, then the attending has us repeat the exam as well after them. I'm not a fan of this situation, but don't feel that I really have a voice against it either. We were explicitly told on our first day of OB/gyn that this is what's expected of us.

    Edit: forgot to add that I have never seen this happen for an unrelated, non-OB/gyn procedure. If we're not operating on or near these organs, we will not examine them (in my experience, at least).

    [–] GOP congressman, who once lamented not being able to call women 'sluts,' loses to a woman tengo_sueno 6 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Maybe they had worse self esteem because everyone around them believed that they had less intrinsic value as a human because of their sexual practices? You're kind of proving the point here.

    I tried. Couldn't find anything personal enough to worry him.

    [–] How do I convince my husband to get rid of Alexa? tengo_sueno 7 points ago in privacy

    I'm not sure what you're getting at - he already knows this. Are you suggesting I take him to court over this?

    [–] vitamins that increase mental health tengo_sueno 1 points ago in nutrition

    L-methylfolate is prescribed/recommended often for patients with depression, especially treatment-resistant depression. This is especially true for people with MTHFR mutations. I'm not sure if there's any evidence for taking it generally if you don't have depression.

    Vitamin D3 is generally a good idea, especially if you live in northern climates as deficiency tends to be the rule, rather than the exception. The evidence for this related to mental health specifically is not great, though.

    Yup, pretty much.

    [–] Asthma aggravated after 2 weeks of WHM - is this normal? tengo_sueno 3 points ago in BecomingTheIceman

    I second this. The last thing you need to be doing if you have asthma is overbreathing (Win Hof).
